Description of the Book:
Midnight Musings is a collection of contemporary poems and mystifying thoughts that explore the dark space between despair and hope. When the days are plunged into darkness and sleep is impossible to find, racing ideas and regretful reflections often cloud conflicted minds. Toronto writer Kishan Baskaran blends themes of magical realism to add colour to the mundane. Bringing confusion into a fusion of stanzas and stories, this anthology captures the inner madness and outer calm many people teeter between on a daily basis. Constructed as a statement of equal parts millennial mental health and baby-boomer blahs, the poetry spans a spectrum of emotional experiences and traumas all can relate to. For the day dreamers who find their imagination spark at dusk, Midnight Musings is the perfect late-night poetic bliss.
